      Our Diversity Makes Us Stronger

      Age, gender, nationality, ethnicity, religion and worldview, sexual orientation, disabilities – our differences make us human. And they enrich us with many different skills and experiences, strength and talents. At Continental, these many qualities power our engine of growth and give us the drive we need to develop pioneering ideas, innovative products, and new business models.

      Current Focus on Diversity of Gender and Nationality​​​​​​​

      We are engaged in specific efforts to foster greater internationalism and a more equal gender balance. 45 percent of our management already comes from nations other than Germany (Status 2017). The percentage of management positions held by women has also continued to increase worldwide – from 10.5 percent in 2015 to 18 percent today (Status 2021). We are aiming to grow this number to 25 percent by 2025.

      Diversity Charter: No Room for Discrimination

      We are committed to a corporate culture which is free from prejudice and values each individual, and which leaves no room for conscious or unconscious discrimination. We not only live this commitment within Continental, but also communicate it to the outside world. In 2008 Continental signed the Diversity Charter*, an initiative aimed at promoting diversity within companies, fostering a prejudice-free working environment, and ensuring equal rights and opportunities for all employees.
